To be honest, I’ve never had a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie before today. I have no idea why. I guess I’ve never really been a huge nut person in the past, but recently I’ve been giving nuts another chance. I was talking to one of my friends the other day and he mentioned that his favorite cookie was a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie. I was a little surprised because you don’t hear about them too often.  So, I decided to give them a try and boy am I so glad I did. These cookies have crispy outer edges, with a chewy and soft interior. Combine that with the crunch of salty macadamia nuts and melty white chocolate chips and I’m in absolute heaven. If you’ve never had a macadamia nut before they are a rather mild and smooth tasting nut. I really enjoyed the flavor of them. These cookies are definitely worth a try, you will not be disappointed!

  1. First of all, I love you.

    Second of all, for some reason I’m odd and don’t really like chocolate chip cookies. BUT I loooove WHITE chocolate cookies, especially white chocolate MACADAMIA cookies. They remind me of Hawaii.
